I’m a firm believer in easy meals that are healthy and don’t take much of my time. This Sausage & Zucchini Linguine is just that. It literally took me 15 minutes to make (with Aishani in the kitchen “helping” me) and was loved by everyone.
Here are a few things I like about this pasta dish:
- Gluten Free (cauliflower based linguine …. so delicious and guilt free!)
- Ready in 15 minutes!
- The combination of sausage and spices packs a punch of flavor
- Bright and colorful veggies
- Carb Free
- A little munchkin, who in the name of cooking with me, ate a good amount of my sausage and bell peppers during the cooking process
Taste Republic has their cauliflower linguine in most grocery stores so go get a pack! (This is not a paid ad, I just love their pasta).
From my kitchen to yours, enjoy this fun and easy meal!
